Church History

Journey Evangelical Church, previously known as Chinese Presbyterian Church of Orange County, began in 1980 as a church plant of True Light Presbyterian Church, focused on reaching 2nd and 3rd generation American-born Chinese in Orange County. Pastor Wayland Wong and a small group of families met for worship services at an elementary school in Huntington Beach. The Lord grew our church into a multi-generational congregation infused with the warmth of being part of His loving family in Christ.

 

We planted a new, independent sister church (Harvest Community Church) in Irvine, CA in 1993. In 1994, the church purchased its current campus and moved to Westminster.

 

Prior to the retirement of our founding pastor, we began expanding our focus to help us reach the unsaved in a rapidly changing society. This led to our name change to Journey Evangelical Church to welcome people of all ethnicities, an expanded Mission and Vision Statement, contemporary worship services, and a continued focus on spiritual growth, outreach and serving others.
